Governor Dayton has ordered that flags fly at half-staff today (WED) in honor of a fallen Marine from Minnesota. The order calls for all US and Minnesota flags to be flown at half-staff from sunrise until sunset in honor of Lance Corporal Dale Means. He was killed November 18 in Afghanistan when the convoy he was riding in struck an Improvised Explosive Device. Means was a 2007 graduate of New Prague High School. His funeral takes place Thursday morning near Jordan.
